Fire the Canon

----more----We read the first two acts of Edmond Rostand’s classic romantic tragedy, Cyrano de Bergerac.  It’s entirely possible that Cyrano is the coolest guy who ever lived.  Listen in as we lay the groundwork for a familiar-sounding love triangle!  Jackie speaks fluent German. Theo lifts weights with gusto.  Rachel stands up for women.  Topics include: Muppet Babies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer (sic), a good take on tertiary syphilis, Hamilton, anagrams, Alphonse Mucha, the Spanish(?) Flu, himbos, curly brains, Will Smith (not the one you’re thinking), whether Cyrano is OP, more dog stories, Scrappy Doo, T-Pain, and IKEA.

Once and future guest Lindsey Kelk’s new book (On a Night Like This) is out!  Check it out.
